From a small, organic family estate of La Stoppa in north Emilia-Romagna with 90 yr old Cabernet vines blended with Merlot and other grapges, this is rustic and compelling. Earth, tar, black fruits with smoky tobacco spices. A pure expression of its terroir, so unapologetically honest. Savoury, flavourful, seamless. The usual descriptors don't apply.
